A number of roads in the borough are to be repaired and resurfaced following a cash injection from Nottinghamshire County Council to improve transport infrastructure over the next 12 months. 

Around £4.25m of a three-year £20m cashpot set up by the county council in 2018 to invest in roads will be spent over the next year.

The council announced a number of improvement schemes will take place in the borough – much to the delight of local motorists.

It was announced resurfacing works will take place on the A60 Mansfield Road, Redhill, Arnold (in the area of the Redhill Road traffic lights); the C213 Papplewick Lane (on the section from the Ashfield Boundary to Moor Road); and the C166 Westdale Lane (as part of the longer-term maintenance plan for this road).

The council also pledged to make signing and lining improvements to the B684 Mapperley Plains and Coppice Rd, Arnold.

Speed management measures will also be put in place at Sherbrook Road in Arnold.

The council also plan to spend money during 2019/20 on making improvemnts to journey times, with roads in the borough set to benefit.

In 2019/20 the second phase of the improvements at the A60 Nottingham Road/B6020 Kirkby Road/B6020 Main Road, junction in Ravenshead (the first phase is due to be completed this financial year); as well as at the A60 Mansfield Road/Sir John Robinson Way, junction in Daybrook which the council say will also help address local air quality issues.

Chairman for Communities and Place, at Nottinghamshire County Council, said: “We are looking forward to another busy and productive year within transport and highways.

“These plans demonstrate this administration’s commitment to investing and improving our 2,600 miles of highways and transport infrastructure.

“Delivering maintenance schemes, addressing journey time delays and road safety are the main issues that residents are telling us about – so these plans aim to help address these priorities.

“We continue to provide the best possible value for money in terms of our road repairs and resurfacing by making the ‘right repair at the right time’ to avoid larger repair bills in years to come, cut congestion and make our roads safer.”
